This one is for Santi...

"I call architecture frozen music."

I thought of you when seeing it in a travel magazine. Here's the picture it was describing. :smile:

There's something to that definition. Parallels are often drawn between music and architecture. :nod:

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows that it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It does not matter whether you are a lion or gazelle. When the sun comes up, you had better be running."

-- African proverb as quoted in "The World is Flat" by T. L. Friedman

A profound truth in this world...

-----
Half-light, purblind streams where moonlight washes over trees / Lustred with a glow, as if from pearls upon the throat
Where the night's kiss lights upon her; rose's rhapsodies, / Warm as oils, imbue this bliss-fed hour with trembling note
"Where-? And who-?" Her breath's unspoken soul is light's perdue
That, hidden, seeks the unseen with a sigh… "Ah, L'inconnu!"

I *can* tell you when sex was considered healthy! Sun and bacon date too much back for my age...

He ached all over. It wasn't just that his brain was writing cheques that his body couldn't cash. It had gone beyond that. Now his feet were borrowing money that his legs hadn't got, and his back muscles were looking for loose change under the sofa cushions.

Actually, I found that in a site that claimed it to come from JK Rowlings's official website, but I've had no time to check. :smile:

Next time. Now I'm too lazy to do so.

One of my favourite quotes is the one I have as a signature. The Devil Wears Prada is actually full of smart and witty quotes. :smile:
